About Hugo

We are looking for a CTO partner for our start-up: Wittpic

About the company
Wittpic is the Photo Contest App. We are the only platform that aggregates every brand photo contest in the same space. Users download the mobile app and participate with their photos, which are ultimately shared in their social profiles (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram), including labels and mentions suitable for the brand. In this way, we are a new social media marketing tool for businesses. We help companies generate visual content around their brand and bringing engagement to the next level. The product is already in the market and the company is looking to strengthen the team with another embodiment "Partner Co-founder" with entrepreneurial profile that contributes to scale the business.

What we offer
Like the idea? Now you can make it your own and join our team. You will work in the heart of Madrid, in the neighborhood of La Latina, in a spectacular environment, alongside other start-ups.

Who are we looking for?
This is a highly entrepreneurial opportunity, not appropriate for candidates interested in a comfortable position with a large corporate firm, but suited for a candidate passionate with social networks and willing to get involved in a high risk / reward start-up with an equity stake participation.

For those considering starting up their own venture, this is a rare opportunity to join a more tangible - and therefore less risky- project, but still at a sufficiently early stage that will allow them to have specific weight in the ownership and management structure of the company.

Role description
We seek a person to be the reference in the technical area of the company. You will place two sheets on the table next to each other. In one, our current, functional and with many defects product. In the other, a blank sheet. We want you to redesign the product, reusing the parts which are good and completely re-developing the ones which are wrong, creating a robust and scalable architecture for the future. You will join us as a partner in the team and suffer your own mistakes and successes. If everything goes well, you will be the future CTO of the company and you will be able to lead your own team.

The technical requirements to address this adventure with guarantees are:
- Experience in web development front and back-end: HTML5, CSS3, JQuery, Ajax, PHP, MySQL, Javascript
- Experience in at least one mobile app technology (iOS or Android)
- Experience developing with PHP framework Symfony
- Knowledge of version control systems (SVN, Git)
- Experience in systems based on LAMP
- Experience developing APIs for mobile applications (web services, JSON ...)
- Desirable knowledge of integrating web applications on Facebook
- Interest in agile methodologies

Contact us and we will tell you more details.
